Romelu Lukaku has dropped a social media hint that he is on his way out of Manchester United.

Inter Milan are stepping up their interest in the Belgian striker but are yet to meet United's £80m price tag.

Lukaku is yet to feature during United's pre-season tour amid an injury niggle but it appears he will be leaving the club once Inter meet United's demands.

And Lukaku posted a message on social media to suggest a move could soon be on the cards.

The striker posed for a picture with agent Federico Pastorello, alongside the caption: "Soon to be continued" and a shushing emoji.

Inter are readying a fresh bid for the former Everton striker with Antonio Conte making him his top target.

Conte vented his anger last week at the club’s delay at securing Lukaku ahead of the new season.

Conte had hoped to have Lukaku in time for last weekend’s International Champions Cup game against United in Singapore.

He is now hoping Inter dig deep as United look to get their money back on the striker they bought for £75m two years ago from Everton.

Lukaku has lost his place under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United, with Marcus Rashford set to be his first-choice striker.

The striker's post comes after Pastorello hailed his client, who has also attracted interest from Juventus this week.

Reports in Italy suggested he could move to Turin in a swap deal for Paulo Dybala.

“We’ve improved our selection of forwards and reached the apex with Lukaku, who is one of the three-four best strikers in the world,” Pastorello told Il Foglio Sportivo.
